paul's prayer

i was going to leave my faith out of this blog.. but it's impossible. it's a huge part of my life, and i can't just not talk about. i wanted this blog just for photography, scrapbooking and design... but i can write about God's design, i think. it's all about the moments of happiness, right?

i've been having a hard time with this job search of mine. i don't know what i'm doing wrong. i don't know what i'm doing right... it's just this long journey of applying and applying and then interview after interview... & then getting that lovely rejection letter/email/call.

i went to a church i used to go today, and it just felt like home there again. the minister is very down to earth, and really puts things into persepective for me. today the sermon was about jealousy, but he said something that stuck with me.

"it's all about the journey, not the destination in life"

God is shaping me into a career woman that He wants for my life, and i just haven't found that perfect job for me yet. it will come. it may just take time, but i know He will answer. He's given me a few months to just breathe, spend time with my family and beautiful niece, and hang out with my friends and go to shows that i love. He knows what he's doing for me obviously, and i just need to keep plugging away on this journey.

i don't really know how to segway into this, but tomorrow night. i will be going to a friend's show at a local coffee shop. i just found out that sean michel will be playing with him. the name doesn't stick with you, does it? what if i show you this...

he auditioned for american idol this last season, and i thought he was incredible in that audition. but God didn't have american idol destined for him... thank the Lord. because what he's doing now is incredible. He's making music for the Lord, and it just sends chills all over me.

i can't wait to meet him tomorrow, and see some of my other friends. it'll be a relaxing evening. i'll get a coffee, take a few photos, talk to some friends, and really dig into the Bible and see what God is trying to tell me. today i flipped it open, and ran across Paul's prayer and i'll leave you with that today.

For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

ephesians 3:14-21
